DICE has started work on the next Battlefield game, according to development director Dan Vanderlind.
Vanderlind confirmed on a href=https://twitter.com/mrVaderdan/status/675317213302247426?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw>Twitter that he and other DICE employees have transitioned to developing this new Battlefield now that Star Wars: Battlefront is complete:
While we know the new Battlefield is a military game, we don't know what era it's going to depict. Will it be Battlefield 5 and take place a few years after the modern game BF4? Will it revisit the futuristic setting of Battlefield 2142? Or is DICE finally going to return to the series' World War II roots? There's also a chance that the sub-series Bad Company could get its long-awaited third game.
Although this new Battlefield won't be out until late 2016, DICE plans to occupy their fans in other ways. As Vanderlind noted, some of the developers are still working on Battlefront. They have four expansion packs planned that will bring new planets, characters and game modes. DICE with supplement those expansions with other free DLC.
DICE isn't done with Battlefield Hardline just yet, either. They still have the "Getaway" and "Betrayal" expansions in the pipe and plan to release them early next year.
What should be the setting for the next Battlefield game?
